Dr. Kim, a PAGNY General, Trauma, and Oncologic Surgeon at NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi and NYC Health + Hospitals/North Central Bronx was published in General Surgery News. His article, "Surgeon in a Strange Land" discusses how the Japanese concept of Ikigai helped him understand his life choice to be a doctor.
"For beginners, ikigai consists of four conditions: First, you love what you do; second, you are good at it; third, the world needs what you do; and fourth, you can get paid to do it." He says.
